I am one of those lucky moms that only has to fix one dinner. Maybe I am just too tired to do more? I have never really had to fight with my children about food. They are not picky eaters, thank goodness...well, the jury is still out on a few things in regards to Charlie. All of them love for me to peel a cucumber and let them eat the whole thing. Little grape tomatoes are also a favorite. Anyway, Tonight's dinner is my Mack's favorite (and Max's). We grilled fillets that were perfect! I fixed twice baked potatoes and a salad with fresh garden veggies. My children all cleaned their plates.
I have been told, by several friends, that food is a huge battle with their children. I guess they get their love of food from me. Growing up, I was just like my sweet papa. He always had to end a meal with something salty.
My papa would always save a bite of dressing or a roll on holidays to eat after dessert. To this day, I will choose salty over sweet. Max is the same way! I guess some things are just in the genes.
